    I wanted to ask for a bit of your wisdom. As you can tell by the title this is in regards to Amazon merch.
    I recently got accepted, and I submitted 10 simple text designs. My question is how long do I give each shirt to generate sales before I deem the design not profitable and switch it out? And what kind of designs sell better; simple text, or graphic cartoon? I really hope to hear back from you. It would greatly help me out in my journey.
    Thank you for your time.

    What sells better is seasonal shirts. I am not well aware with US festivals but Lets suppose Father's day is near then upload some new and creative designs related to that and you will bank hard. I Hope you get what I am saying.

    Also give it a rest for a while to see whats converting better and whats not. Dont flip designs within a week, let me stay for atleast 20-30 days to get proper answer.

    Cheers

    It does take a few months, but you should still sign in to check sometimes you will be accepted but won't get the email so just make sure. But usually the wait time is a few months so don't worry you'll get in.

    Niche isn't the problem, but rather the design, what type of t shirts convert better clever text designs or graphic designs for niches? And your saying I should give the designs a month to generate a sale before switching them out Is that right? If so, okay thanks :) will do that but if not then what do you mean?

    one of my designs got 2 sales after almost 4 months yesterday! They were actually sold in the first week of September, but Amazon sent a email about the Sept sales yesterday and on checking what were sold then, I realized that design got success after 4 months! So if a design is good, keep it up imo.

    Graphic design and text deisgn sell. It depends on the content of the design. It could be a simple text that touch people when they read or it could a graphical explanation of something. Both sells. You just have to find that sweet spot to bank hard.

    99% of the time it is keywords used in your brand, title, bullets or descriptions. PM me what you were using and I'll tell you where you went wrong.

    Is it an issue for a merch seller to buy their own merch t shirts? (in order to move up a level from 10 to 25)

    Post one of your designs and the keywords. I'll try to then post a similar design that's ranked and selling.
